With an estimated budget of $2.6 billion, Inglewood's new NFL stadium may be the most expensive ground-up development underway in Los Angeles County. A camera perched above the sprawling construction site now offers a real time look at progress on the future 70,000-seat venue, which will soon be home to both the Rams and the Chargers.
At this point, the project appears to be little more than a vast dirt lot, although the level of activity on the property will undoubtedly increase as the stadium approaches its 2019 opening date.
HKS Architects, based out of Dallas, Texas, has designed the the currently unamed stadium with a swooping roof canopy, composed of metal borders and a lightweight fabric known as ETFE.
The Inglewood stadium, which is being developed by Rams owner Stan Kroenke, will serve as centerpiece of a larger mixed-use neighborhood slated for the massive site that once held as the Hollywood Park race track. Real estate firms Wilson Meany and Stockbridge Capital are planning approximately 3,000 residential units, a 300-key hotel, 25 acres of park space and 620,000 square feet of commercial space on the surrounding land.
